Alicia Keys Says Original 'Snow White' is 'Totally Sexist' & Misogynistic'

Alicia Keys is not a big fan of some of the original Disney movies, particularly the classic Snow White.

The 35-year-old singer recently expressed her disapproval of the movie’s portrayal of the lead character’s role, noting that she won’t let her sons watch the film.

“They say that every child learns from their mother – and it’s ingrained from babyhood,” Alicia told The Edit magazine. “I get real funky about the classics; I don’t like [my sons] watching [the original Snow White]. It’s totally sexist, misogynistic – she’s cleaning for seven dwarfs.”

“There’s nothing wrong with a woman who chooses to stay at home with her family, it’s a hard-ass job, but it’s the way it’s spoken about,” she went on.

“For the first time, I’m recognizing how art, activism, socially what we’re going through, all go together,” Alicia added. “For the longest time I thought it was all separate.”
